CHANGSHA, CHINA — Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology Co. of Changsha, China has announced it has commissioned two units of its new ZAT24000H all-terrain crane, which at 2,400 tonnes are claimed to break the world hoisting record.
The cranes were delivered June 30 to Hebei Province. The model has surpassed Zoomlion’s previous record for manufacturing the largest 2,000-ton all-terrain crane, stated a release.
